To the Myarchn Community:
With great sorrow I have to notify about Gustavo Manrique's passing on 7 October 2009. I learned about it through an E-Mail I received today from a common friend.
Gustavo was indeed a great friend, whom I got to know as a work companion in the Monuments Office in Mexico City. I admired his drawing style, his engravings, his sense of humor and his qualities as a human being. I was still able to have met him in February last year on occasion of the Great Breakfast organized by the National Autonomous University of Mexico, and after that, we had an active correspondence over the Internet, during which I got to know even proofs of his literary talent. He will be sorely missed.
I would like to ask you, dear Rafael Marxuach, if his page could be maintained on this site in remembrance. I intend to upload some more of his drawings to it.
Greetings to everybody,
